LPS Monday: Peace on Earth

Hey everyone...Happy Monday! Well, the kids are back to school, I worked pretty much all through Black Friday weekend...it's time for a little PEACE!

I try to remind myself during the season that I need to remember the focus of this time of year. It's so easy to get caught up in the hustle, bustle, crowds...and crabs! Yes, as unfortunate as it is, this time of year does tend to bring out the worst in people. It's so easy to get wrapped up in the stressful things instead of enjoying it all...myself included! I am my own worst enemy this time of year...teacher gifts, cards, shopping...I need to organize better but I also need to remind myself that there will be time to get it done, just like in years past. So, I'm gonna try not to stress...easier said than DONE!!!

I have a card for you today using the Little Paper Shop's Flourished Dove set. This is a beautiful set for the holidays, but it is definitely versatile enough to use for other occasions, too! I really like the font and there are some beautiful flourishes and wrought-iron type images. Check it out HERE.

Did you know that the Little Paper Shop ALWAYS offers free shipping on orders of $45 or more? What a perfect time of year to stock up on the sets you've had your eye on...AND the sets that your friends had their eye on! Online shopping is ALWAYS easier than getting out to the mall this time of year...take it from someone who works retail LOL!

Be sure to check out what the other LPS DT bunch created for you this week...they are so talented! Links on my sidebar :) Have great week and I'll see you back here soon :) Warm hugs...it snowed here last night! ~Jess :)
